S. 2018, Long Island Sound Restoration and Stewardship Act

Cost Estimate

As ordered reported by the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works on June 21, 2012

S. 2018 would require the Long Island Sound office of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to study the impact of climate change on the Long Island Sound watershed and develop strategies to increase public education about that area. Assuming appropriation of the necessary amounts, CBO estimates that implementing this legislation would cost $254 million over the 2013-2017 period.
